Festivals

Diwali

Diwali usually takes place in October or November and dates back to ancient times when people celebrated the summer harvest.

It’s the happiest holidays in India and it’s sometimes thought to be a mix of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Holi

Also called the “festival of colors,” Holi is the perfect way for visitors to experience a fun day in India. It represents the start of spring, and the date to leave conflicts and mistakes behind and forgive others. The streets become an arena for a water fight mixed with plenty of colored powder (make sure you wear old clothes as they’ll be ruined!).
